Bello Nock charms Springfield

My favorite clown, Bello Nock, charmed the crowds in Springfield, MA, at the MELHA Shrine Circus. His performance was enchanting and entertaining.

The “Circus with a Purpose” uses all proceeds to support the good work of the Melha Shriners in western Mass.communities. Thousands of families enjoyed the circus and the quality entertainment that local residents look forward to year after year.

Bello Nock is the world's greatest daredevil. A seventh generation circus performer, millions know and love Bello for his unique blend of engaging entertainment and jaw-dropping daredevil stunts.

Bello was included in TIME Magazine's list of "America's Best Artists and Entertainers." The New York Daily News said that Bello was arguably "the greatest athlete" to ever set foot in Madison Square Garden. He's the only person in Ringling's 140-year history to have a show named after him. The "Bellobration" tour set attendance records and Kenneth Feld, the world's largest producer of live family entertainment, called Bello, "a once in a lifetime performer."

His performances at Madison Square Garden were one of our favorites of any of the Ringling shows we have attended.

Bello's awards and accolades are too numerous to list. But a few of the most recent include being featured in the 2013 Guinness World Book of Records for a daring sky wire walk over a cruise ship at sea, YouTube footage of him hanging by his toes under a helicopter have garnered millions of hits and his self-titled Broadway show was nominated for a Drama Desk Award.

Bello's motto is, "No audience member should need more than the edge of their seat."

And now, seeing him perform with his daughter, Annaliese, who wowed the crowd as well, brings the eighth generation of his family into the circus elite!
